In June 2012, Julius Nyang’oro began working as an advisor at Global Growth Advisors in New York City. In his spare time, Julius Nyang’oro enjoys watching Manchester United play soccer.

Considered the world’s most popular soccer team, Manchester United was established in 1878. During its existence, the club has won a record 20 league titles from 1908 through 2013, the FA Challenge Cup 12 times from 1909 through 2016, and the European Cup three times. In addition, the team is the only British team to have won the Club World Cup with its triumph in 2008.

In June 2016, the club announced it would honor members of England’s World Cup championship team from the 1966 World Cup. To celebrate the team’s 50th anniversary, several members of the squad returned to Wembley Stadium when Manchester United faced Leicester City. The team encouraged fans to participate in a minute’s applause when the stadium clock hit 66 in the second half. Sir Bobby Charlton and Gordon Banks were guests of honor for the pre-match celebration. Other players who attended included Jimmy Armfield, George Cohen, Ron Flowers, Roger Hunt, and Sir Geoff Hurst.
